Camp Connell, Ca -- Logic tells me, when I am swimming in the ocean, that sharks may live nearby but they don't really want to eat me.
But I could never get past the idea of them looking up at me, wondering if I would be stringy or tender.
And now I live in the forest with bears and mountain lions and other creatures, like spiders.
So I really appreciate this official list of how many people die by various critters that many of us fear. Note that the most dangerous is a Bee/Wasp. We have lots of those.
Average Number of Deaths per Year in the U.S

I am always careful around dogs and horses anyway.
